“Getting in touch” My people shall never be ashamed. —Joel 2:26
Read Joel 2:23-27
The Lord summed up the various earthly blessings He gave to Israel in Joel 2:23-32. As you read this portion, you may be inclined to ask, “How can all this be true?” On a more personal note, perhaps you are wondering; How can I be sure the Lord has me in mind? There is only one way to find out, and that is to go to the Lord yourself, with your suspicions, your unbelief, and your doubts.
The Lord has been in touch with you from the time of your birth. In fact, He assures you that He will not send away those who need and seek Him in uprightness of heart. This is the experience of every believer. In verse 27 we read, “And ye shall know….” The Lord sends earthly blessings, but above all, He gives spiritual blessings, making His people praise Him forever and ever (vv.26,27).
Let us also take notice that verse 27 emphatically states, “I am the Lord your God, and none else.” So flee from everything that keeps you away from the Lord. This can only be to your profit. The Lord has said, “My people shall never be ashamed through-out all eternity!”
What does the Lord require of us?
